5:03 am
unsafe time the brothers have gone back home the orphanages doors are locked the children have been sent away it's too dangerous to stay here. we saw how the jerk fighters blew over and dropped bombs on the real road station. a shard from the bomb hit a girl in the head we have no bomb shelter if they started bombers we don't know where to go stop it stop the fighting. what do we need to do this for enough as the find inspiring of control more and more civilians find themselves in the line of fire and meeting with an eighteen year old student who says the last few days have been the scariest of his life he's also afraid to show us his face while on a more cynical. working not leave someone not afraid we're not terrorists it's not like the korean army is setting us free hundreds of children have been
5:04 am
evacuated from the area as a precaution some two hundred the dangerous roads from slavyansk to serve us to poll you. just saw unusually calm and quiet here now explosions going off this compared to what we left in five ounce it was scary nobody expected that things like that could start happening in our small town that was never famous for anything in. life for children in eastern ukraine is changing fast whereas once these playgrounds were full of laughter now they're mostly empty and in the silence of foreboding of what's to come policy r t two netsky eastern ukraine and ukraine's newly elected president and chocolate tycoon petro poroshenko he was the focus of media attention this week and it seemed to have while he was having trouble deciding exactly what to do about the rest at one point ukraine's new head of state said he was ready to start dialogue with the east but then he made
5:05 am
a sudden u.-turn calling for a much stronger more effective military crackdown on the anti government movement independent political writer daniel patrick welch thinks the project i was never serious about negotiating with the activists in the first place. he has absolutely no intention of conducting negotiations and he absolutely says so and various other for he says that the operation needs to be stepped up and it needs to be what he called more efficient and we see what that means today right that means involving. shelling against civilians. isn't that fall in the air occupied apartment. fighter jets and helicopter gunships and grad launchers against. urban populations . and ukraine's newly elected leader is set to meet u.s. president barack obama on wednesday this during a visit to poland washington has supported kiev throughout the conflict and this
5:06 am
week once again made it clear who it blames for the bloodshed we remain concerned about the actions of russian separatists against. civilians in eastern ukraine there are a lot of reports that this is an entirely one sided that the. separatists some of the separatists leaders say that. the ukrainian authorities have been shooting civilians but you don't you haven't seen that well if we have concerns will express them. now some disturbing videos of the aftermath of the violence of come out of its hotel in donetsk region this week to warn you some of the upcoming footage we're about to show is graphic the pictures are from a morgue in dawn yet scritch received the bodies of anti-government activists they were allegedly killed while being taken to hospital in what self defense forces described as trucks with medical insignia activists say the vehicles were shot and then targeted with grenade launchers had to government forces claim thirty five
5:07 am
people were swiftly killed and not one of so. you can always find much more at r.t. dot com you can follow minute by minute updates on the developing situation in the country. for now at r.t. international europe's been stewing over the results of parliamentary elections this week after extreme parties attracted more votes than ever before the established god in france and britain reeling over the strong victories of the of the right wing national front and the euro skeptic ukip while in southern europe austerity weary voters have turned to the left for. the european leaders were shocked by the results the german chancellor angela merkel calling the people's choice remarkable but regrettable the french president francois hollande admitting he finds it hard to understand the political tastes of modern day europe but as you might expect their leaders of the parties that came out on top in britain and france were keen to push their agenda boyd by their new found support. i don't just
5:08 am
want britain to leave the european union i want europe to leave the european union i don't believe that flag but i'm for about a president whose name no one knows what really represent what europe should be said but it's like our people demand just one kind of politics the politics of the french for the french with the french our people no longer want to be directed from above. mainstream parties who are out of favor with voters in the u.k. the liberal democrats for instant. excuse me secured a single seat in the european parliament while nigel farage the top man of the u.k. independence party called their victory the greatest a breakthrough in british politics in a century as artie's party boy who explains his moment in the sun has not been overshadowed by a vicious campaign against. the past week sixteen you kept warning is coming from
5:09 am
all three of westminster as mainstream political parties the mosque is starting to slip look at what some of the candidates have said those were offensive comments they were a racial slur we have to say maybe she's a disgrace what's being revealed behind that sort of beer swilling but i mean he's a really nasty view of the world politicians criticism has been accompanied by personal smears against nigel farage in the british press headline after headline dedicated to his alleged former mistress weakness for women and his german wife it's kind of it called her see just sort of. the way that sort of thing it touches i mean i found a site document i will say many insurgent. costs basically everyone talks next expression is not right what anyway is basic i must be against it and yet none of them are sticking it to all the secret establishment which is the media. stream and you know i still can't stand i mean can i just tell one b.b.c.
5:10 am
reporter even used a non-story frying pan to illustrate nigel farage his ability to deflect bad press even as the party has made a series of pretty catastrophic mistakes in terms of candidates making derogatory remarks about wimmin and migrants and so on so the point is you keep support is more resilient than we often think it is according to the guardian newspaper labor and conservative polling this week has revealed that ukip supporters see the policy is negative press as a sign that members of the political establishment ganging up to undermine the party three four months ago labor leveled the charges of racism against the military nobody no one saw it was a racist policy and now the establishment and their friends in the media have done their very best to make sure that everybody thinks that there is certainly a problem with fear if you can't i mean and it works out in different ways so i think that all the parties. have to be careful about condemning you keep the party
5:11 am
itself while not condemning the people who support the party because they want those voices to come back. and try to get away with it back in two thousand and six david cameron famously branded the party a bunch of fruitcakes and loonies and closet racists but the phenomenon of ukip surprise may prove. that there is no such thing as bad publicity. r.t. . one of bahrain's most prominent human rights activists has told r.t. he'll continue his fight even though we've just been released from prison after spending two years behind bars now job was arrested for taking part in protests and for an anti monarchy dry that he posted on twitter so let's try and shed a little bit more light on our jobs achievements and exactly how we ended up behind bars it goes back to two thousand and two when he established the bahrain center for human rights an organization that he would run for nine years at the time of

5:13 am
beating ones i now have back injured repeatedly arrested and assaulted for joining anti-government protests he was initially jailed for posting a critical tweet against the prime minister then sentenced to two years in prison for taking part in pro-democracy demonstrations as you know we have been ignored by the international community because bahrain is would big and saudi bought it go for it be rich part of the world which has a lot of influence in the west hating each country in different amenity based on the financial background or all your existence to the older audience states that would not have declared it it was that countries. emerging from prison on saturdays her job was welcomed by hundreds of supporters and then visited his mother's grave the last five family members while he was locked up never given
5:14 am
a chance to say goodbye despite the heartache and government intimidation ridge ob valves to carry on now it's the first time i was exactly happening i was i said and unfortunately i see the situation as watson and do the institution the most important complicated and this is going to be a gap between the when you get into the opposition and the government has become why then want to go on fortunately see more violence being mistreated by the police and reacted by the people and that's the call. yes. r.t. . we're coming to you live from moscow in russia's far north rescue teams are searching for sixteen people some to believe believed to be high ranking officials who are now missing after the helicopter crashed into
5:15 am
a lake in the motor mounts region wide biology's were to cause river can you bring us up to date what do you know at this point absolutely very well we know about the two people have been found already by local fisherman that were taken to a hospital in a critical but stable condition the fates of the remaining sixteen people is are known we do have reports that. the passengers were a high leading lead in five businessmen from the mormon scrooge and as well as high ranking officials according to the latest report they were actually on the business trip but there are it's in the very end their journey suggests that the accident happened after office hours if you will as they were on their way to fish and side in a local tourist area according to an investigative committee among the theories as to why the accident happened as a aircraft function which led to the disorientation of the pilots also there were bad weather conditions and of course we know that it crashed in northern russia in the. lake and as it crashed the aircraft split into three parts and now the debris
5:16 am
is at the bottom of that lake now also know that this is not the first time that we hear about a small aircraft crash in carry on high ranking officials back in two thousand and twelve a small plane carrying thirteen passengers among them high ranking regional officials crashed in the year olds and it's a year so find the aircraft and the bodies and in that case it was because the area was not easily accessible in this case contact was lost with the helicopter sat it late saturday nights and already we know that of course we know that they would see survivors but we're still waiting to hear about the fate of the remaining sixty nine we will of course bring you the very latest as we get it ok marina thank you for that. now america will go to wall wherever it thinks it needs to roll in the name of global security that's all according to the american president barack obama in his very latest address more on that in just a moment. please
5:17 am
please carol they are looking very hard to take a. little longer here. that are back with her make her look. a. little. political. a bubble.
5:18 am
thanks for sharing your sunday with us here on r.t. international a new era is dawning upon the world that of american leadership that's according to president obama in a keynote speech he gave to us air force academy graduates he said his nation holds the key to maintaining global stability and although going to war is both costly and dangerous obama said america is still prepared to do it whenever it wants wherever it wants its guy nature can be. president
5:19 am
obama's message to the world the u.s. is the one indispensable nation on earth and must intervene wherever it can america must always lead on the world stage. if we don't. know one well it's well. the united states well use military force unilaterally if necessary when our core interests demand that. making some wonder whether the u.s. recognizes other nations right to do the same president obama has named countries which in his view challenge the international law russia china iran cold though he spoke persistently about the us is right to use military force unilaterally the us president admitted not every part of them has a military solution just because we have the best hammer does not mean that every problem is a nail president obama's major foreign policy address was far from home both because of america's efforts because of american diplomacy and foreign assistance
5:20 am
as well as the sacrifices of our military. more people live under elected governments today than at any time in human history washington takes pride in bringing democracy to iraq. and now ukraine. these countries are in chaos. empires typically the romans talk about the emperor of divide and rule you know if you can cause chaos you can more easily rule president obama was also speaking to some of his opponents here who say he hasn't been to be in world affairs but his speech indicated that moving forward u.s. foreign policy is going to be as interventionist as ever in washington i'm going to check on our team. and during that speech barack obama praised the u.s. for ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan at a day earlier he had said he would now leave almost ten thousand troops in
5:21 am
afghanistan until at least twenty sixteen despite a nominal change in mission they'll still be fighting that's according to robert naiman from the just foreign policy institute. that's what they're seeing no this is what they always say it's what they said in iraq that you know quote unquote combat is over for just you know they're just going to invite in the small print is there when the u.s. military says it lies and this is then they say that well in order to you know you can't just train troops in the classroom you have to send our troops out with their troops for the practical so the u.s. troops will still be in you know combat renan they will be leading the combat they'll be invoicing the combat according to the plans of the pentagon. it's also international russia and kazakhstan this week officially formed a new economic union the treaty comes into force next january and this means free
5:22 am
trade financial in. non-labor migration between the three countries and two more states may join by the end of the year the new document merges the previous agreements reached under the customs union and the single economic space deal patrick young an expert in global financial markets told r.t. the new deal sends a big wake up call to europe and america think about it this way i mean amongst these three countries alone in the customs union they've had over the last few years they've increased their trade between themselves by the equivalent of mind of the entirety of russia's trade with the united states of america russia and the rest of the world have alternatives and why they trade just because you happen to be on the eastern fringes of the european union it doesn't automatically mean that you're going to try and fight your way into the european union as currently is why not go with something like this eurasian union where you've got affectively all the benefits of the first stage of the european economic community i.e.
5:23 am
free trade but you don't have to worry about the silly regulation all of those sorts of problems let's face it europe was never going to be the only union in the world just in the same way that nuff there in america was never going to be the only trade agreement there and russia was four hundred billion dollar gas deal with china could catalyze the downfall of the us dollar as the world's reserve currency that's according to a number of american economists i spoke about it with david kuo the c.e.o. of financial advisory firm the motley fool singapore. america needs to be very aware of what is going on because what is happening will be china will be paying for they cast probably in rubles and so consequently. what will happen between these two countries is that they will be trading in their in their own respective currencies consequently they will not be holding u.s. dollars as a result previously what you had to do was to say let's go and buy some u.s. dollars and use that for paying for they cast over in russia and that may not
5:24 am
happen in this particular case because i think both countries want to move away from holding too much in the way of u.s. dollars. a conference in sweden on internet privacy and surveillance failed to invite key activists in the field including edward snowden and journalist glenn greenwald in fact the wiki leaks representatives were also left off the guest list and the move caused a storm on twitter where a stream of sarcasm and anger was directed at the organizers of the forum users were left wondering how a convention on internet freedom could ban wiki leaks and snowden at the same time those running the conference did give their excuses so my colleague yulia ship of oliver she took up the issue with wiki leaks spokes person kristin. we should strive for the balance here i must admit that we have not been entirely successful we have. seen it as important to. to look
5:25 am
into the process or such or to the revelations so what do you think about those excuses. well i don't think they're very credible i mean how can you would discuss the problems of the internet and the dangers of most of a list there without analyzing the problem and actually inviting the people who are experts in the field. this is a forum that is sponsored by the foreign minister of sweden headed by the foreign minister and we have been known since two thousand and eleven and twelve that they were not interested to have any elements of their that were critical of the united states government and the activities of the u.s. agencies it doesn't surprise me if you look at the revelations. by you had were snowden you see the role that sweden plays behind this facade of the neutrality of the basically the dogs of the united states government and we always have plenty

old it's. too bad the promise is one any and on top of. the do good on out. this little known country is tucked away on an island at the very edge of the pacific ocean. as the modern world is being discovered nations created a new inventions brought to light and a guinea lived an isolated life of its own. it's a long way from regular maritime routes. of humanity was fighting fiercely in europe during the second world war stone axes were still in regular use here. even today there are a few ships to be seen near the hazy shores of papua new guinea.
5:30 am
bidding mountains throw down a challenge for future explorers. still remains one of the most mysterious some travelers say intimidating places in the world. when this russian air plane flew to a canadian airport passing directly over the highway local drivers were so amazed by the sheer size of the. almost lost control of their cars the next time it landed local radio stations had to remind motorists to keep their eyes on the road and not on the skies this is before this is the world's largest.
5:31 am
wingspan. this russian aircraft design is known as the. for the first time. the capital of papua new guinea. soon it will fly over the mountains and into the heart of the island. craft has long been expected in the jungle. can you possibly explain a jet engine to people who are so removed from the modern world. these pilots have undergone thorough preparation for this expedition papua new guinea is not an easy destination for most travelers it would take russians twenty eight hours to fly here few bother coming. and nobody is quite sure what lies beyond those mountain
5:32 am
mist's. the photographer was surprised about that and she kept asking what it. takes for papua new guinea takes eight i think. during the age of discovery there were still many blank areas on the world maps and sailors. that's when europeans came here for the first time but they didn't stay long. it wasn't until the end of the nineteenth century that they started to explore new guinea the russian explorer. succeeded where others have failed. with the people of this jungle island in one nine hundred sixty one.
5:33 am
but the truth. of the great britain. they became independent. we were told. we were. either way if you look at
5:34 am
these people they are. the. whole. of the. story. tell him stories of this kind to keep. the most dangerous city in the world when you come to. prison camps. to build
5:35 am
a. gas was found in the wild mountains of papua new guinea but developing the field is difficult because of the lack of infrastructure. there are no roads from the capital. to the region of the gas field was discovered. by. an american oil company has launched a large scale international project to build an extraction facility for liquefied natural gas to achieve that the enormous russian. to deliver construction equipment to the site. much easier to build a runway for the craft. through the mountain jungles. for the first time extra safety precautions were taken.
5:36 am
there were. i don't know if they were excited or not. the first landing. sensation here of the. flights now operate every day. and in the evening it flies back to port. even though the highly qualified professionals who have flown the whole world the flight crew spend their free time in the hotel. set foot outside the hotel because they're afraid. they tell us a lot of interesting stories local people who still live in tribes. they have no modern economy. children don't go to school. and they have swords that they actually use quite often. but. they scared.
5:37 am
people at night. so don't go anywhere. it's a big day in this coastal village of a couple in new guinea it's headstone day the day of commemoration. people gather around the central square for a traditional ceremony. the day is celebrated with everyday food rice and boiled bananas which remains seasoned in honor of the holiday rice and bananas here are usually cooked with a little salt but they sometimes use kids instead they can be bought in any of the village shops the same goods are sold all over villages sult style cubes vegetable oil coca-cola and tinned foods it's
5:38 am
a coffee break coffee is grown on the island practically nobody drinks it long ago they drank tea made with. collected from the jungle. that was given up because tea bags were much easier to use the kitchen is always outside the house which consists of one big room and several bedrooms open to allow a draft to flow freely and keep the house cool. this village has electricity and even t.v. sets it lacks only a fresh water supply. water is delivered twice a week. the family usually has from four to six children keeping a pig is a sign of a family's prosperity. this is quite an affluent village. it's not far from the capital where most of the villages go to work. the streets of
5:39 am
port moresby a crowded with working men. there's a school and a hospital in the village several different churches stand side by side close to the village square within a single village you can find people of several different faiths. and i came to papa new guinea as the un volunteer doctor in one nine hundred ninety four as i travelled through the country i felt like dorothy in the wizard of oz in one region i found hopper's in another i found munchkins they differ so much amongst themselves some are tall others are short they speak eight hundred forty or eight hundred sixty languages on the island. the only thing that unites the whole island is the beetle not people all over the country eat it dipped in lime powder it raises their spirits and holds back hunger pangs there's not ritual is an alternative to a peace pipe if two tribes quarrel they make up over
5:40 am
a bowl of beetle nuts but those who live in the coastal villages where e of the people who live high in the mountains. but there we live different lives of the people in the mountains but you shouldn't. play the game days from the mountain a little bit different even if you need to understand. it received enough. if you. feel limited it will fade in it's going to your leadership. mineo new guinea's mountain twelve has to be found living close to the como camp. terrifying people who almost nobody has seen but everybody fears. lines high in the mountains beyond the fence.
5:41 am
i wonder if you think that all that support free of charge or whether there is some sort of implicit expectation that american oil companies or just american companies will get someone better access to your country absolutely and there is nothing these days for nothing if this somebody assisted you to achieve a certain victory there must be something in return. bustles versus the people and the growing democracy deficit voters all across europe have such a very strong message to the gate keepers of the european union and the establishment media they must in fact power to the people. well to take some steps to you know reassure you cream you want to see
5:42 am
a prosperous stable ukraine but i don't think that you know in the end i don't think that that's the west this point do all that much for you three. b.n. says it is often and anstice way especially when they were in a good mood but now just before months is rarely seen. these three friends mark able and conny live in the mountains not far from the coma
5:43 am
camp their village has no electricity and was no newspaper deliveries the only news they get is through local gossip rumors of a new big airplane have already reached them and they're hoping to find a way to see the flying wonder for themselves. life in the mountains of papua new guinea is not as wild as it is strange. where two very different civilizations mix in a particularly unusual way. the white people made a big mistake when they brought western clothing here it rains a lot. of grass dries very quickly after the rain but it takes a long time for t.
5:44 am
shirt to dry as a result much the number one illness among the local population is not malaria but now monia. western culture and values are gradually taking root and. today he's wearing a traditional grass skirt tomorrow he'll put on jeans tribesmen where both types of clothing but they are becoming more accustomed to western styles. people only discovered this region in thirty three they came in search of gold and were amazed to find the populated valley where people still living in the stone age . in just a few decades the mountain inhabitants have been forward through time by thousands of years. all the mountain villages look alike small houses
5:45 am
made of bamboo there's no electricity or fresh water and this is one of the few places in the world where nobody watches t.v. . mark his mother and wife and sister all have houses of their own women strictly forbidden from entering mark's house. this is where he keeps those things that are dear to a man's heart. and . he fears. they and. by far the. most wife is roughly twenty five years old but no one is sure when asked about their eldest son's age the family was confused after some time they finally agreed that he was probably three years old
5:46 am
but mark has five children so the oldest can't possibly be three. the population of papa new guinea lies somewhere between nine and ten million the exact number is unknown because most people don't have passports during elections people's fingers are painted to signify that they've already voted but they can just clean off the paint with lemon juice and vote again if they want to. people here have extended families but they might have several mothers and fathers and often change their names today a man might be peter john but tomorrow he could take his name from a different father. passports or only need a different pup or a new guinea and plans to travel internationally but travelling requires money and
5:47 am
there are practically no means of earning a wage and marks a village. the family lives on the food it can grow gourds green leaves corn but known as avocado and sweet potato. there are no mangoes or coconuts in the mountains of purple or new guinea. the family eats just once a day they say it's not because of poverty they're simply not hungry. drink milk here either as there are no cows. only goats the pig is obligatory for every ceremony from weddings to feel or else a pig can be a bride's dowry and is the most valued possession in papua new guinea. women breastfeed pigs i've seen it a lot of women have breasts that have been bitten by pigs. abel friend of max managed to buy a piglet not long ago. how. he'll
5:48 am
raise the animal to sell in the future for a profit able has no other means of earning a living for himself and his family. just going to say it's quite hard to form an opinion what do we see really the hotel the plane the camp people working with us we've been told not to go outside the camp much. i'm not sure if they're exaggerating or not when they say if you go outside. we've all been frightened to death but the devil is not as black as he's painted after all of those have you seen any mosquitoes no me neither do. you wake up and they say malaria and typhoid are most prevalent here but that's not true. when we first went to see their hospital the warrants were divided into two
5:49 am
groups the first was typhoid the second malaria. but it turned out later that there was a stroke patient someone who had a heart attack and so on. but yet if a man has diarrhea they call it typhoid and well everything else is malaria. today especially at nine o'clock in the morning people in port moresby witnessed a solar eclipse. at ten in the morning the pilots decided to use their day off to finally take a chance and walk around the capital city. and nothing terrible happened. they even found common ground with some of the
5:50 am
locals. the crew chief and didn't feel she asked again goes on well with a local fisherman from a nearby village. the pilot scheme and arrange to hire a boat with a new. friends the next week to go on a fishing trip. how did the island get such a bad reputation. perhaps it has something to do with the fact that people still live in tribes which may clash from time to time. to get from one province to another. it's just because everyone still enjoys being scared by a horror story. the next day for the crew again flew to. the three friends mark. all the way to the fence to see the flying
5:51 am
plane with their own eyes. suddenly they now have the opportunity to work some money and as a bonus to see the daily show of an airplane taking off and landing as well as meeting all those who've never seen an aircraft before. some of. some of. the. originally there were a few families living here but when construction began the more entrepreneurial
5:52 am
locals moved closer to the fence. rhonda is one of the most respected women in the village she works in the kitchen. but construction is. when ben had a paying job his seven children became a customs to good food. people . people. are people.
5:53 am
so. it's. all. right you know. we're not defending on b. . we don't. people from this village usually only see europeans in the reservation.
5:54 am
most white people are afraid of going beyond their protective fences which is a shame because the villages would be only too happy to see them they're willing to welcome guests with everything they have been happy to show off their way of life. i prepared to. live by the fence have never gone beyond the mountain. of the cannibals. and the highland villages of papua new guinea are afraid. i didn't.
5:55 am

this is the wiki announcing to national welcome by russia belarus and kazakhstan this week officially formed a new economic union the treaty will come into force next train already this means free trade financial interaction on labor migration between the three countries two more states may join by the end of the yet the new document a much as the previous agreements reached on to the customs union and the single economic space deal patrick young an expert in global financial markets told aussie they need deal sounds a wakeup call to europe and. them think about it this way i mean amongst these three countries alone in the customs union they've had over the last few years. they increased their trade between themselves by the equivalent of mind of the entirety of russia's trade with the united states of america russia and the rest of the world have alternatives and why they trade just because you're probably on the
6:18 am
eastern fringes of the european union it doesn't automatically mean that you're going to try and fight your way into the european union as currently years why not go with something like this eurasian union where you've got affectively all the benefits of the first stage of the european economic community i.e. free trade but you don't have to worry about the silly regulation all of those sorts of problems let's face it europe was never going to be the only union in the world just in the same way that nafta in america was never going to be the only trade agreement there. was four hundred billion dollar gas deal with china could catalyze the downfall of the us dollar as the world receive currency that's according to a number of american economists and i suppose actually my colleague spoke about it with david kuo c.e.o. financial advisor at the motley fool singapore. america needs to be very aware of what is going on because what is happening will be china will be paying for gas
6:19 am
probably in rubles so consequently. what will happen between the two countries is that we will be trading in the in the road respect authority and consequently they will not be holding us dollars as a result previously thought you had to do was to say let's go and buy some u.s. dollars and use that for paying for the gas over in russia that may not happen in this particular case because i think both countries want to move away from holding too much in the way of u.s. dollars. russia's authorities have decided to shut down american g.p.s. stations on russian soil the deputy prime minister says they could be used for collecting military date and not just for show use of monitoring earthquakes let's have more now from knowing of course or actually trying to line marina tell us so what's going on exactly that. it's important to clarify that the american g.p.s. stations are continuing to work just like they used to the only difference being that as of today when it comes to military and seismic data this war not be
6:20 am
transmitted to the u.s. and earlier we did hear from that piece of prime minister admitted i was a who did warn that this could become russia's answer to the difficulties encountered by russia's glonass system be the equivalent of the g.p.s. and that's because they're supposed to install five station over american territory by twenty twenty so since the encounter difficulties there this seems to have become russia's answer to that and also important to note that this has nothing to do with a navigation system so this will continue working normally and will not a fact any data coming in to russia or even russia for that matter. seizing arenacross arrest thank you very much indeed marina. a conference in sweden on internet. trying to say on surveillance failed to invite cindy field including edward snowden un journalist glenn greenwald wiki leaks representatives were also left off the guest list the move caused
6:21 am
a storm on twitter where a stream of sarcasm and i'm go was directed at the organizers of before users were left wondering how a convention on internet freedom could bonna wiki leaks and snowden at the same time those running the conference didn't give their excuses and oh yeah i too took up the issue with wiki leaks pokes person kristinn hrafnsson we should strive for balance here i must admit that we have not been entirely successful we have. seen it as important to not. to look into the presupposing process or such or to the revelations as such so what do you think about those excuses. well i don't think they're very credible i mean how can you would discourse of the the problems of the internet and the dangers of much surveillance there without analyzing the problem and they could be inviting the people who are experts in the
6:22 am
field. this is a forum that is sponsored by the foreign minister of sweden headed by a car built the foreign minister and we have a normal since two thousand and eleven and twelve that they were not interested to have any elements of their that were critical of the united states government and the activities of the u.s. agencies it doesn't surprise me if you look at the revelations both way we. were snowden you see the role that sweden plays behind this facade of neutrality they are a basically the dogs of the united states government. the white house has ruled out any sort of clemency or mercy for whistleblower edward snowden nevertheless the state department says the man responsible for revealing the n.s.a.'s mussing spying program should come back home snowden has said he'd like to return to the u.s. but not to a jail cell in the meantime there are many eager to cash in on the whistleblowers
6:23 am
today. reports. action figures comic books of variety of hard calder's paperbacks and the books and even hollywood blockbusters and sony pictures purchased the book in order to make a film about it i'm thrilled about that as well all star in one figure who love him or hate him is already an icon edward snowden he is in my view in the view of many others a hero who stood up for what was right is certainly more of a hero than all the superheroes like superman and batman who end up getting movies and all sorts of licensing deals and action figures. the whistleblower who brought to mind blowing national security agency's surveillance programs to light for some he's an inspiration. for others he's their next business venture. if anything can be licensed or exploited in any way you can be absolutely certain
6:24 am
that there will be business people who will try to do so stuck in moscow and facing espionage charges in the u.s. snowden is one person who doesn't seem to be cashing in on his name and where snowden is very bright and i think he probably does not care for this kind of nonsense the action figures the comics except but there isn't much he can do about it the money making machine surrounding the former cia contractor could be viewed as conflicting with his goal of fighting against mass surveillance and an infringement of privacy rights by the n.s.a. the more you inject comic books and action figures into something the less serious then other people take it while some of the attention may be inane glenn greenwald the journalist who broke the snowden story says selling movie rights and releasing a book on the topic are all in an effort to spread the word on privacy issues in the u.s. even if he does make a buck i don't make any apologies at all for having written
6:25 am
a book i've been working on surveillance issues for eight years i want to maximize every platform that i have to go. around the world and talking about why these surveillance policies are so dangerous the intentions of those capitalizing on snowden's name may vary some are working hard to spread the word on the state of surveillance in the u.s. while others are little more focused on the cash but while the money making industry using snowden's name is gathering steam so is his message especially churning out art see new york. and after the break it's worlds apart with house stocks on a boycott here and also a tough. one to have an abortion before this creature looks like a baby. and my career is going pretty well at the moment i've got
6:26 am
a lodging in turning partner who understands my situation. form. into evidence that he's in the right time. and i need to think about it. i was born in the ukraine i grew up in a family of alcoholics as did many of my foster son's kids who'd slept rough on the street since they were four years old some since they were two enough to know the ridge man where are you here and can and now because of where i want to help won't be able. to there was a group of kids standing by the road like you put the children here aren't even asking for food only wanted some water to drink. i saw a hundreds and hundreds of poverty stricken children dressed in rags. but i
6:27 am
couldn't forget the eyes of this one boy i came back a year later to find that little kid. a very big man dad. that was how i came by one mall foster. empathize with palestinians. help and provision. for a bright future of freedom. that their promises once but any bread. for.
6:28 am
a long welcome to worlds apart down the world's youngest nation a struggling on their world all this problem war and as an african saying goes one allophones five is the grass that suffers what is driving this conflict well to discuss that i'm now joined by south downs foreign minister barham mero advancement minister thank you very much for being here on the show thank you for inviting you it's an honor for us now i know that you recently arrived from norway where your attended an international donors conference. was intended to raise funds for the humanitarian catastrophe in your country and as far as i understand the international community has already pledged around powerful one point three billion
6:29 am
dollars that that is required to deal with it but i wonder if that money is just a band-aid that deals with the symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of these conflicts which seems to be. a very old struggle over oil and mineral resources well first of all as i must say that it was it was a great effort to realize that. they don't know conference you know slaughter spawn to the humanitarian needs of the republic of south sudan particularly when it is going to the people and to to to answer what you have said that's why we have suggested that there must be. monitoring and accountability body that didn't should include of course the donors money because these people give that money for the good that is to benefit the ordinary people minister i wonder if the speed of his speech international community acted in this case very expedient has anything
6:30 am
to do with the mineral wealth that your country possesses because we know that international community is sometimes very slow to react or oil and other mineral resources usually serve as you know very strong impetus for well of course the country country resources. another source of attraction but i think south sudan as you know it's a country that has suffered for so long for many years before they achieved freedom and secondly to have a new its country on earth you see these days it is not easy to see in country and here it is a new country nearly two years old getting into some of the problems of course there's a difficult problems here you know just of thousands if not millions of people being displaced or under the threat of being displaced i wonder if you agree with such formulation that this conflict at the bottom of it is ultimately about oil or are they mineral resources will it preserve first of all this is this issue is
6:31 am
a power struggle that comes in with the resource with the issue of water because south sudan is even though the numbers deficit of oil but as i must say. there's also the element within the donor of computer communities some of the people who genuinely wanted to seize this young nation so that they know but come it's a challenge. which had enormous challenges but i think the people of south sudan doing the best that survival forty days since the process started there was already a peace process going so there was a lot of these a process didn't. hasn't resulted in anything substantial i mean some of the peace deals have that have been brokered so far they have already been violated but before we go there let me ask you something about how these conflict has been framed so far and what i found extremely interesting that one of the protagonists former vice president dr musharraf claims that this struggle is all about democracy
6:32 am
while his forces just as the government forces are accused of committing human rights violations and i wonder if that reflects a broader trend that in order to justify or legitimize a war or a conflict you need to side democratic reasons yeah well that's where we differ with the former vice president because incidentally it was an attempted coup because the weight started within the presidential guards where the supporters of former vice president wanted to actually to to overthrow the government through the use of force after they failed to talk to over the presidential goods they moved to the army headquarters there we had been repulsed so basically after failing not to take over the government in juba he reverted to where he went to jungly stayed with the duma to come up with is the come monday in charge of division eight in that state gave himself board and he differed with he's due to come and so the
6:33 am
government as opposed to vice president should to do particular munda and that has turned it didn't state over. to everybody and where he has been educating for people who would support him so really it is a struggle for power that has come out of the failure on the part of the vice president to achieve that through a democratic process therefore for him to claim that he is fighting democracy for. kristie i think that is the story that nobody can buy well i think some members of the international community are buying this story and are just so the other day that your son vassar to south sudan susan page was reported saying that south sudan rebels are fighting i just want and it may be falling short of endorsement but that that is definitely not a condemnation do you think the united states is being fair to you how it treats both sides. i must differ with the head expensive the decision to describe these
6:34 am
people is a just war that is not just ordered this the vice president has been the second man in the government for the last nine years he was second in the party. so he has been a part in fact of the effective management constitutional management of this country so to call this a guy thing is that rather being unfair to the fed that the government which is actually needed left a democratic government by the people of south sudan by the way ninety three percent of them elected this government so this is a democratic government which is there to protect the constitution and the sovereign the total integrity of the republic of georgia that minister you just said that calling it a just war. may be unfair and i would like to you look at the possible reasons for that unfairness i mentioned the united states and we know that washington has already invested over the last two years around two billion dollars in south
6:35 am
sudan's. economy particular or oil industry and it was also very instrumental in supporting and encouraging your country's independence i wonder if you think that all that support comes free of charge or or whether there isn't some sort of implicit expectation that american oil companies or just american companies will get someone better access to your countries i mean you know absolutely that is nothing new. these days for nothing must be something for something that's they usually say we know that. it's a very huge country by the way it's bigger than the size of friends and it is indued with the almost resources of my say and that's why south sudan describe these describe as the very territory of the continent of africa because of the riches that it has in spite of all these assistance that we know that south sudan has the normal minerals not all of the way although what you're saying is that the kind of the poor that washington provided for your independence is to some extent
6:36 am
conditional on the mineral resources that you know directly but out of human relationship if somebody's assisted you to achieve a certain victory there must be something in return definitely you know south sudan has invited a lot of investment from the united states like we would see inviting a lot of investment today from the russian federation and one one other country where you're inviting those investment from is china and china as far as i know already invested eight billion dollars in south sudan's oil industry and that's on top of twenty billion dollars that it invested in sudan you know the country before it was split into two parts and i wonder if you know the chinese expansion in south sudan and the competition traditional competition between the americans and the chinese over access to material resources has anything to do with the conflict oh well not really this conflict as i said basically is also
6:37 am
a personal greed and ambition in trying to seize power through the use of force and of course as it's politicians always do especially the rebel leadership they will try to sell some of these things in order to get support in whatever manner power that they are looking for but talking about the involvement of china is china has been involved in the oil industry even before the independence of south sudan and. when the independence was achieved of course it was realized by by china's investment that most of the oil they were getting was within the geographical territorial integrity of the republic of south sudan and we wanted this resource to continue so yes indeed there is enormous chinese investment in south sudan it's not as i must say that it's not only south sudan alone china is all over africa but i think they have the option of of having their wallet open for projects and if you want to build a road. which is or
6:38 am
a highway for example in their vision to relax that needs three billion dollars well these days maybe if you had that type of money maybe we are doing that chinese influence has been very positive i think many but not necessarily be americans and your own call lake in the south sudan's cabinet minister for over information sad on the record that the united states has a vested interest in sudan's south sudan's oil industry and the reason why it may be assisting or not exactly downs the replacement of your democratically elected government is because your government has grown increasingly closely connected with the chinese so he seems to see that struggle between the americans and the chinese as at least indirectly linked to the bloodshed that is happening on the ground in fact if you go back to the history of the food first discovered oil even in the sudan when it was the one country it was but the chevron
6:39 am
company we used to be which is that a subsidiary of the international oil company of california. the oil industry was initially supposed to be exploited by the chevron company but when the war broke out in one thousand eight hundred three that actually follows them to pull out of the oil industry so united states is that we that we have the responsibility of having discovered this or your lead in of the day so the competition is there but but as i say south sudan is the free liberal market that invites investment all over the world by the way not only with the chinese we you know as i said americans invited the russian federation is invited and in fact as i speak to you know something that which is the russian company is already have been the primary and it would be the first refinery in the republic of south and now if i may ask you very quickly as you probably know you mentioned russia will read it. the leadership of
6:40 am
this country is very unhappy with what it sees as the u.s. support for regime change around the world than they were the word coup or attempted to cool has been already authored by you and what i found extremely interesting in comparing south sudanese situation to the situation in ukraine reach here as you understand we are all preoccupied with. in ukraine the united states pushed very hard for prior presidential election but in south sudan if we are to believe your president they pushed to postpone those elections and the goal for both despondent and pushing rushing for the elections is reconciliation so i wonder how do you explain to yourself. what seems to be a bit of inconsistent approach you know i was when i was meeting the russian ambassador to uganda and south sudan. and when we talked about the issue of ukraine and crimea and i was telling them oh my dear i think you have good your hands you
6:41 am
know we have our own region going to be a region which was actually in one thousand or five where was the next to be a part of administration of the prison so i did notice that but it's not. reasoned lives you know we have a protocol on a bid which is asking for the people over b.a. to go for it a friend them so that they go back and join the republic of south sudan and i think the smile that and i thought that this would make it easier for more support for the issue about being in the russian federation would understand why the republic of south sudan is saying be a should go back to the republic of south sudan because that's where it belongs so it seems that the crimean event or the crimean affair is actually setting an international president precedent here but mr we have to take a short break now when we come back not all the gold glitters what other resources are attracting major players to south sudan that's coming up in a few moments on
6:42 am
a world apart. these. were the economic ups and downs in the final months the london sank night and the rest because i take it will be everything going on for me. we'll take some steps to reassure you crean we want to see a prosperous stable ukraine but i don't think that you know in in the end i don't think that the west is going to do all that much for ukraine.
6:43 am

welcome back to worlds apart of discussing the development of south sudan's resources and the implications for regional security with the country's foreign minister barnabei marial benjamin. mr benjamin just before the break you said that russian companies are also welcome in south sudan and some of them already are working there as far as i understand with their south sudanese partners they are already build and will refine their invent to reach is expected to become operational in a couple of months and given the increasingly closer ties between russia and china in the energy sphere do you think that they could join forces sense also and if saw what do you think would be the reaction of the united states i guess my
6:45 am
question is who had south sudan become. the staging ground for yet another proxy war similar to the one that we saw in syria or even in your crane these days i don't think so that south sudan can become a focal point for a proxy cold war between for example russia china with the united states because that i think. what the policies of south sudan being a friend to or i think is a strategically important and remember there is a chinese saying that if you and me are friends don't us who are my other friends because some of them can be you and i mean i think the fed that this young nation would like to be a friend to all those friends after all we all mighty has given us the ability to choose friends you it was choose your friend mr and so if there is enough around this enough our own dead to the south sudan people who have more friends to invest
6:46 am
and develop this young to the tree is the editor of my theory you are being a bit idealistic because if you look at the history of oil exploration around the world you would find that some members of the international community the united states being one of them exercise their approach of who is not with us their parents live. with yeah absolutely so i'm in you know you can be open to all sorts of and investors bread that you are not. totally free when it comes to choosing your partners because if you don't choose or don't go along with some of their wishes they they may support your enemies yes but at the end of the day south sudan is a state that has got its own national interest we would go with a friendship that coincides with national interest and i think that is the that is the no more ball nations on planet earth divide you do as you did with you because there's mutual interest in more can i can i switch gears
6:47 am
a little bit we've discussed your oil very lucrative oil industry but i wonder if we could draw our viewers' attention to another industry and this is weapons washington has spent more than three hundred million dollars since two thousand and five to you professionalize the south sudanese army russians are also very open about being interested in your defense sector there have been some reports that chinese weapons have made it to sudan and are being used to sell sudan rather and i being used in the in the fighting i wonder if this is another lucrative area which may potentially pit those great powers against one another with celso don being in the middle well that's what we will basically avoid and that's why we are working enormously to have peace and stability because once you have peace in that country then the issue of weapons does not become
6:48 am
a priority because what needs no between me and you that it needs peace it needs to build it so that this country that has suffered for so long can now begin to exploit the resources that for the benefit of its people and i think that is the direction we are going to that's why we have moved very quickly and we actually send the countries we're trying to resolve this rebellion in a much faster and i can assure you my government and my did as your president said of a kid my idea is committed that we we stop this is. senseless killing in that country so that we have peace and stability so the need for weapons were not bit longer and as i was speaking to the foreign minister today. minister lavrov the importance of supporting the peace process in south sudan and that goes to united states it goes also to china but i think all those countries that you mentioned they certainly. a place verbal support of peace in south sudan as well as around
6:49 am
a while but. the actions is something else entirely and i know that you know just recently your government intercepted a u.n. shipment of weapons labeled as food and. you know that shipment was headed for hotly contested oil areas and i know that the united nations put it down to a labeling error but i you know everyone would be extremely suspicious in this case i mean you cannot confuse brad for i don't know bazookas was somebody trying to your arm the rebels in south sudan well it was those weapons with stop by the authorities at the state it was the friend that there was an agreement between the united nations peace mission and publish that if their way into weapons to be taken to the stations all across those have to be with the knowledge of the government and also would have to be lifted so when these weapons were found to be
6:50 am
sort of. labeled in not we should have been where the united nations apologized for what happened and then we got enough for your government well the nations the nations always as well in the ones apologies given a mistake is a step to so for the united nations to have a step today that it was a mistake it shouldn't have happened and that there was sort of what has happened do you believe. in your heart that that was a genuine mistake right i was. you know what every speech and was exactly that these weapons were going to elements that might not only that you know to to take those weapons in a territory like south sudan say from from central equatoria from juba right up through lake state and going straight up to unity state didn't bend to for example to these weapons could have fallen into the hands of the rebels in unity state and this could have wasn't of course that's what we believe if the reason was not to go
6:51 am
for any other requirement that they needed and that's why we wanted the united nations to be after all south sudan is a member of the u.n. and if that exercise is carried out it raises concern and suspicion. from the top leadership of the united nations including so that the general ban ki-moon that this was a mistake it shouldn't have happened well we did that for the model of responsibility of the leadership of the u.n. but don't you i mean i'm getting a bit conspiratorial here but i know that you personally also had you know some difficulties while passing through the customs of our certain countries don't you think that you know you know those sort of. incidents are used to put pressure on your government to send these message that doesn't need to be a straight forward but you know it is clear that the young as we are as
6:52 am
a nation we also are sensitive to those issues and that's why we always said if anybody was to help that this young country in the where to live is born for the moment in the republic the family of where nations it would also will not be given its expedient told two two two two two four a mission united nations mission to be involved in said an exercise and since there is as as a well body that all of us are involved in sept it as a mistake and apologize it what can you do after the. yes of course you would say find me that what it was but please we hope it won't happen again now let me move on to yet another. industry that holds enormous potential for south sudan and i think this is gold exploration just recently your government over there licenses in a bid to win itself of your dependency on oil if i'm not mistaken something like ninety eight percent of your government's revenues come from oil so any sort of
6:53 am
diversification of would be extremely welcome but i wonder if the decision to grant all those licenses nowadays was wise without first solving the security issue because it seems that by. granting there's light licenses you may be actually prolonging the volatility in your region in your country by adding yet another look pretty if resource into these already very dangerous mix told because it was recently that parliament actually posed a mining law in the country so that it was possible now for the mining industries and my investors were interested spatially in gold to come in but as i said much south sudan is a huge that history where we have the rebellion is only three states of ten these three states as i said is jungly up at night in unity but the gold mine in these in
6:54 am
the other states which i salute a stable and peaceful that is one thing so they do the company's going to go with all the confidence to do the. mining secondly as you said south sudan also is indicted to use the other resources for the benefit of the of the people in the country and that's why we say it is not oil alone which is their goal is not only gold. nicolai and diamonds their uranium then there's something else i'm sorry for interrupting. here but there are so many examples in africa where reach natural resources stymied the country's development and fueled the bloodshed and do you think your independence and then syrian conflict would have happened if it wasn't for the oil and the gold and the nickel that you just mentioned isn't it proving once again to be a more of a cars than a blessing. absolutely to have these type of resources on top of it you
6:55 am
know most other cultures and potentially in our country what i resources you have enormous water resources we have the biggest wildlife migration today in the world is in south sudan you could go on the other cultural sector in the mining sector as i said these are enormous resources that can bring the goods but what are we for as human beings we learn from the mistakes of others despite being the case we also bludgers a responsible government to use these resources to. the services to our people but i think we will have learned from history and around us of what this like to see i agree with you what it does if it's real with you what is happening in nigeria absolutely it becomes a problem but what is your solution though for delivering those resources to people because if i'm not mistaken about eighty percent of your people don't have access to toilet facilities and yet as you mentioned you you have such enormous mineral
6:56 am
riches how do you make sure that all those resources go to the people rather than to multinationals because really already talked about all those countries are interested in you know in those resources that you possess and yet your people get very little of. that why we did what we call in constitution the accountability and the involvement of the ordinary people and civil society organizations to see that the resources of that country. appropriately and that's why you have it and that's why you have a government. institutions which are built so that you can minimize the loss of these resources that go to others to multinationals and others and. to learn from others that's why i'm here. for a go so that we as a government can lend the experiences of others and how to be
6:57 am
a young nation like i was while minister. i appreciate you being on the show unfortunately we have to leave it there and tell our viewers please keep the conversation going on our twitter and facebook pages and i hope to see here again same place same time here. and you.

7:03 am
a girl in the head. we have no bomb shelter if they start to bomb us we don't know where to go stop it stop the fighting. and what do we need to do this for a lot enough as the wind and spirals out of control more and more civilians find themselves in the line of fire and meeting with an eighteen year old student he says the last few days have been the scariest of his life he's also afraid to show us his face while on a more cynical. not leave someone not afraid. we're not terrorists it's not like the crimean army is setting us free at least hundreds of children have been evacuated from the area as a precaution some two hundred the dangerous routes from slavyansk to serve us to pull. it was the last road we just saw unusually calm and quiet here in knox lotions go in after the compared to the left and for about six weeks it was scary
7:04 am
nobody expected that things like that start happening in our small town but it was never famous for anything quite like for children in eastern ukraine is changing fast whereas once these playgrounds were full of laughter now they're mostly empty and in this silence of foreboding of what's to come. we are t two netsky eastern ukraine. ukraine's new elected president and chocolate tycoon petro poroshenko or the focus of media attention this week and he seemed to have trouble deciding exactly what to do about don west at one point ukraine is new head of state said he was ready to start a dialogue with the east but that he made a quick u. turn calling for a stronger more effective quieted down on the anti-government movement and independence but it's greater patrick welsh thinks par shango wasn't serious about negotiating with acts of its in the east. he has absolutely no intention of conducting negotiations and he absolutely says so and various other things for he

says that the operation needs to be stepped up and it needs to be what he called a more efficient and we see what that means today right that means involving. shelling against civilians bombs isn't that fall in the air occupied. fighter jets and helicopter gunships and grad launchers against. urban populations. and ukraine's new to elected leader is said to me to u.s. president barack obama on wednesday during a visit to poland washington has supported a k a through the conflict and this week once again made it clear who had blames for the bloodshed we remain concerned about the actions of russian separatists against. civilians in eastern ukraine there are a lot of the porch that this isn't entirely one sided that i mean and the
7:06 am
separatists some of the separatist leaders say that they've been to the ukrainian authorities have been shooting at civilians but you don't you haven't seen that well if we have concerns will express them. and some disturbing videos of the aftermath of the violence have come out of the turbulent donetsk region this week and just a warning some of the footage where we're about to show you is a graphic the pictures are from a morgue and donetsk which received the bodies of un to government they were allegedly killed while being taken to hospital in what some defense forces describe as trucks with medical insignia acts of his say the vehicles were shot at and targeted with a grenade launchers and to government forces claimed thirty five people were swiftly killed in that one assault. the center of the ukrainian capital is packed with people who began the movement that would be current authorities into power and these are the same authorities that are now telling them to leave but most of the square don't seem to want to go
7:07 am
and here are the latest pictures from my don the square the gathering earlier brewed cuba's new mayor. when he said democracy had been installed in the country and the protesters job is now done through each co also bandung from his own calls to tear down the camp and the barricades but the crowd was skeptical. and you can always go to see the home to follow the minute by minute updates on the developing situation in the country. europe has been stewing over the results of e.u. parliamentary elections this week after extreme parties attracted more votes than ever before the stoppage got in france and britain is reading out with a strong victories of the right wing national front and you're a skeptic you cape and a while in some of europe austerity weary woes have turned to the left for answers european leaders were shocked by the results the german chancellor angela merkel
7:08 am
calls the people's choice both remarkable and regrettable meanwhile french president francois hollande admitted he finds it hard to understand the political taste of the modern age of modern day europe but as you might expect the leaders of the party that came out on top and britain and france working to push their agenda boyd by their new found support i just want britain to leave the european union i want europe to leave the european union but i believe our flag but i'm about president whose name by one knows really represent what europe should be celebrated seek our people demand just one kind of politics the politics of the french for the french with the french our people no longer want to be directed from above. and we ask long serving british labor party and. while you are skeptics are so popular right now across europe. course the probably is that they don't want to be
7:09 am
your goal it's a very it's a very nasty your for many people in terms of encouraging cuts in public expenditure and the rest so some of the different europe some of the europe and some just want to keep the political class what underlies much of the xenophobia much of the support of the populace for these is that people are suffering and we need to make. europe start getting if you don't start putting money into the economy to actually create jobs growth. a future looks more hopeful and we have a moment. one of bahrain's most prominent human rights acts of its has told r.t. he'll continue his fight even though he's just been released from prison after serving a two year sentence now bill werde job was arrested for taking part in protests and for an anti monarchy gibe hate posted on twitter so let's now shed some
7:10 am
a little more light on what jobs achievements and how he ended up behind bars so back in two thousand and. center for human rights and organization he would run for nine years at the time of the uprising and was already targeted by the government in a march twenty eleven armed men broke into his home detained and beat him next month tear gas was fired into his elderly mother's house he soon began receiving death threats on twitter in my twenty twelve he was briefly arrested after taking part in julian assange show here on our c three months later john was sentenced to three years in jail for organizing and participating in illegal anti-government protests the term was reduced by again in december and today for now at least he's a free man he was one of the fast media outlets to interview nobel rajab says he was released and here's what he had to say. if the over job is getting frequented with a life away from isolation and abuse before the back story is i was kept in isolation
7:11 am
away from the thousands of police to go up the sinners i was mostly with people that i don't talk to and which i've seen at these six people being tortured by police i was beating once i had back injured repeatedly arrested and assaulted for joining anti-government protests he was initially jailed for posting a critical tweet against the prime minister then sentenced to two years in prison for taking part in pro-democracy demonstrations as you know we have been ignored by the international community because bahrain is the wood that goes in saudi body to go for a new bridge part of the world which has got both influence in the west hating each country in different amenity based on the. financial background or all your existence of water on states that would not have
7:12 am
a big if we did it was ten countries. thank you much you from prison on saturday for a job was welcomed by hundreds of supporters and then visited his mother's grave thank you lost five family members while he was locked up never given a chance to say goodbye despite the heartache and government intimidation job valve's to carry on now is to focus on what's exactly happening i was sorry you said jane and unfortunately i see the situation as waterson and do the institution goes one complete good. because it will be a gap between doing what he did that was a sham and the government has become y. that i want to i'm fortunate to be seeing more why is he being mislead by that police he reacted by eating people and that's the cause.

r.t. . a few teams are searching for sixteen people in russia's north including high ranking officials who are missing after their helicopter crashed into a lake in the middle months creature and debris from the wreckage has been spotted on the surface of the lake two passengers have so far been rescued they've been taken to hospital and are in a critical condition because of the accident is still unknown it isn't the first time russian regional politicians have crashed in an isolated area while on a trip in twenty twelve it took a good to find a small passenger plane that went missing in the queue rolls with a regional officials on board. america will go to war rabbit things it needs in the name of global security that's according to barack obama's latest address we'll have more on that in a moment. you're
7:14 am
7:15 am
watching that we can all say international welcome back. a new iraq global american leadership is doing that's according to president obama in a keynote speech he gave to the u.s. military account to make sure it's he said his nation hold the key to maintaining global stability and over into wars both costly and dangerous he said america is still prepared to do it whenever it wants wherever it wants oh he's going to check on how small. president obama's message to the world the u.s. is the one indispensable nation on earth and must intervene where every ten america must always lead on the world stage if we don't. know one
7:16 am
well it's well. the united states will use military force unilaterally if necessary when our core interests demand that. making some wonder whether the u.s. recognizes other nations right to do the same president obama has named countries which in his view challenge the international law russia china iran told though he spoke persistently about the us the right to use military force unilaterally the us president admitted not every part of them has a military solution just because we have the best hammer does not mean that every problem is a male. president obama's major foreign policy press was far from home because of america's efforts because of american diplomacy and foreign assistance as well as the sacrifices of our military more people live under elected governments today than at any time in human history. washington takes pride in bringing democracy to iraq. libya. and now ukraine.
7:17 am
these countries are in chaos. empires typically you know the romans talk about the emperor of divide and rule you know if you can cause chaos you can more easily rule president obama was also speaking to some of his opponents here who say he hasn't intervened in war the fares but his speech indicated that moving forward u.s. foreign policy is going to be as interventionist as ever in washington i'm going to check on r.t. . during that speech barak obama praised the u.s. for ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan yesterday earlier he said he would leave almost ten thousand troops in afghanistan until two thousand and sixteen and despite a nominal change in mission they will still be fighting according to robert naiman from they just foreign policy institute. that's what they're seeing no this is what
7:18 am
they always say it's with the senator raw you know quote unquote combat is over for just you know they're just going to advise in the small print is that when the u.s. military says it buys in this is then they say well in order to you know you can't just train troops in the classroom you have to send our troops with their troops were deployed to do so the u.s. troops will still be in you know combat or renan they will be leaving combat they'll be invoicing the combat according to the plans of the pentagon. russia belarus and kazakhstan this week officially formed a new economic union the treaty will come into force next chain yury this means free trade financial interaction and labor migration between the three countries two more states may join by the end of the year the new document emerges the previous agreements reached under the customs union and the single economic space
7:19 am
deal patrick young the expert in global financial markets told r.t. the new deal sends a wake up call to europe and the u.s. business them maybe think about it this way i mean amongst these three countries alone in the customs union they've had over the last few years they've increased their trade between themselves by the equivalent of mind of the entirety of russia's trade with the united states of america russia and the rest of the world have alternatives and why they trade just because you happen to be on the eastern fringes of the european union it doesn't automatically mean that you're going to try and fight your way into the european union as currently years why not go with something like this eurasian union where you've got affectively all the benefits of the first stage of the european economic community i.e. free trade but you don't have to worry about the silly regulation all of those sorts of problems let's face it europe was never going to be the only union in the world just in the same way that nafta in america was never going to be the only trade agreement there russia's four hundred billion dollar gas deal with china
7:20 am
could catalyze the downfall of the dollar as the world reserve currency that's according to a number of american economies and earlier we spoke about it with david kuo c.e.o. of financial advisory fund the motley fool singapore. america needs to be very aware of what is going on because what is happening will be china will be paying for gas probably in rubles and so consequently. what will happen between these two countries is that they will be trading in the in their own respective fallacies consequently they will not be holding u.s. dollars as a result previously but he had to do was to say let's go and buy some u.s. dollars and use that for paying for the gas over in russia and that may not happen in this particular case because i think both countries want to move away from holding too much in the way of u.s. dollars. russia's authorities have decided to block some signals from
7:21 am
american troops here station stations on russia's soil barring them from sending data to big u.s. military forces marine a quarter of the hostages have. importance of clarify that the american g.p.s. stations are continuing to order just like they used to the only difference being as that as of today when it comes to military and seismic data this war not be transmitted to the u.s. and earlier we did hear from that piece of prime minister gordon who did warn that this could become russia's answer to the difficulties encountered by russia's glonass system the equivalent of the g.p.s. that's because they're supposed to install five station over american territory by twenty twenty so since the encounter difficulties there this seems to have become russians answer to that and also important to note that this has nothing to do with a navigation system so this will continue working normally and will not attract any data coming in to russia or illegal in russia for that matter. the white house has
7:22 am
ruled out any sort of plan and see all merciful whistleblower edward snowden nevertheless the state department says the man responsible for revealing the n.s.a. is nothing spying program should come back home snowden has said he'd like to return to the u.s. but not to a jail cell in the meantime there are many eager to cash in on the whistleblowers name. action figures comic books a variety of hard calder's paperbacks and the books and even hollywood blockbusters and sony pictures purchased the book in order to make a film about it i'm thrilled about that as well all star in one figure who love him or hate him is already an icon edward snowden he is in my view in the view of many others a hero who stood up for what was right is certainly more of a hero than all the superheroes like superman and batman who end up getting movies and all sorts of licensing deals and action figures. the whistleblower who brought
7:23 am
to mind blowing national security agency's surveillance programs to light for some he's an inspiration. for others he's their next business venture. if anything can be licensed or exploited in any way you can be absolutely certain that there will be business people who will try to do so stuck in moscow and facing espionage charges in the u.s. snowden is one person who doesn't seem to be cashing in on his name and where snowden is very bright and i think he probably does not care for this kind of nonsense the action figures the comics accept but there isn't much he can do about it the money making machine surrounding the former cia contractor could be viewed as conflicting with his goal of fighting against mass surveillance and an infringement of privacy rights by the n.s.a. the more you inject comic books and action figures into something the less serious then other people take it while some of the attention may be inane glenn greenwald
7:24 am
the journalist who broke the snowden story says selling movie rights and releasing a book on the topic are all in an effort to spread the word on privacy issues in the u.s. even if he does make a buck i don't make any apologies at all for having written a book i've been working on surveillance issues for eight years i want to maximize every platform that i have to go. around the world and talking about why these surveillance policies are so dangerous and the intentions of those capitalizing on snowden's name a very some are working hard to spread the word on the state of surveillance in the u.s. well others are little more focused on the couch while the money making industry using snowden's name is gathering steam so is his message is that each of you know archie you are. and will always have plenty more in line for you including trying down and arrested the profound old infamous file sharing website pirate bay has been taken into custody in sweden after two years on the run and also that problems

are plaguing the world cup the host country for food bowl suggests show the biggest show football's biggest show should say struggling to eradicate mosquitoes spreading the incurable dengue fever that well they're there for the knife to go until the event kicks solves that and more now website. a russian soyuz carrier with a new crew onboard successfully docks with the international space station on thursday because blasted off from by canoe for its six month mission. looked off of requires a good bunch of american astronauts read by his men his dragon colleague alexander starting the crew's russian commandement seems to arrive are on board the trip to the ice earth took less than six hours as opposed to the usual two days in new crew will carry out dozens of experiments and conduct three spacewalks the trip comes at
7:26 am
a time of heightened tensions between russia and western powers over ukraine. and cause a doubt over the future of space cooperation but crewmembers have our own take on the political wrangling which they shared with the music before the launch. yes of the break we're bringing into our needs are a boat behind a famous place some. old yours at the shore of old one of the most isolated places and. why do candidates you smear tactics to get in office because it works if all that
7:27 am
mattered about a candidate were their positions they would just hand out piece of paper with the guy's positions on them but that's not how it works people make choices based on emotions whether they are buying a can of pop or selecting their candidate it's the packaging that counts heck obama won ad age as marketer of the year for one of his campaigns yet image is everything but in texas one hopeful for the lieutenant governor's chair has used arrivals of medical records against him the incumbent david do hearst has been able to use the medical records which were released by another candidate who dropped out to make his opponent look crazy because he was at a psychiatric hospital twice with round the clock observation for severe depression now is it ok to use this info in a campaign maybe the public should know if someone is crazy legally it's probably ok and yet it works but is this hypocritical all of us are guilty of something and if you take our worst moments as a person then you can make anyone look evil this is the tactic of the week with
7:28 am
nothing to offer the public so they hide behind slander they just want the position of power and nothing more but that's just my opinion. today and. signs of more interest for a worse associate pastry prior to any big changes are to blame somebody else those words where i'm still trying to tease and it was in our game the text of what if scenario see the game sells which. we are in some sort. of it seems to me.
7:29 am
this is our senior national coming to you live from moscow with me marina welcome to the program now calls from the opposition leaders to maintain a truce was a riot police have failed to prevent protesters in kiev from building new barricades and burning tires on embattled independence square. what's happening is basically the. deal position might be the opposition in the eyes of what seems anyway in the eyes of the european union in the eyes of the united states the world to get on t.v. but whether the these guys and said no everybody be peaceful they have all gone. to you. hello hello hello let's now cross live to our correspond the author oliver

who's following closely developments there peter do you tell us what's happening where you are at the moment what's the atmosphere in the city but what we're seeing right now is the continuation of the rebuilding of barricades reinforcing if they were already there the building of new barricades and some positions. where you all seeing a steady stream of people arriving here just behind me is independence square is continuing to have speeches been delivered to a crowd over where the main flash point is bay needed to numb a stadium we were just over there before i was talking to you and the barricades are still being reinforced as much as they can the still hold thai is arriving we are hearing from the opposition that they're trying to convince people to get back on board with a truce to have talks but really the reaction it's getting from a holiday line of riots is that they not spaying much attention to that they don't really want to see this any kind of trees one of things that we have see what would

be going around the barricades a lot of of pre-made. well itself called details that are ready to be thrown it seems in some cases people already wanting to to those one of the most disturbing things though we have. just recently comes from the authorities here which they all eg getting ready and they're prepared because of some information that they've received that they could be an attempt by khalid like groups. to perform some kind of retaliation killing to retaliate for the deaths of. demonstrators here in kiev so that's o.c. very worrying news and would be keeping an eye on not as we get more information although it's ok. and they're not succumb to this. that still is after me and. i don't want that i mean you know russia could go either way it could be very tense
7:32 am
all very very cold. people getting to be getting help. to. have been given up on top. of. the trade. that is. one thing you know what. will cause. the. like you to just keep people keep. have to have an. impact on. the. t.v. set to. make. it clear. it is not liberate.
7:33 am
you have explained to me. i mean. when we think we. look better than i looked when i got it. that'll help. me. since a lot of people i didn't expect technology exploit them like so many people in the winter. i'm thinking this is tell me everything. else like. you know what i'm doing and can't so i want to make any someone we can feed that is
7:34 am
. science explains happily because that's getting too big. to say get it but it's. a million dollars that you can. to plus just about get a world where technology comes concept they say. it's all about jazz it's all it's a. hold up. a lot in de lima's it wouldn't be fulfilled without all smartphones as well as that computer now i get sick make it in moscow they're trying to get you to meet the creators of all these amazing gadgets that we live in in our world the technology behind it and also taking you to places beyond your dreams. so this is meant to carry up to how many kilograms affect the top to bottom of the primacy iow
7:35 am
you weigh forty eight. i really don't weigh back and that's. such a well put on the yeah it's a you know climb up in that i have my mike it's the mix here and then i'll just say i'm not sure if you drop the pace of it or whatever i'm a. bet i'm not. i'm just a russian and sure i don't become a right so such as what the lads lead on this is not a rescue situation but let's just say that there was a situation where somebody was stuck somewhere in the snow to be there because it's winter right now in russia and they needed to be this coming to the united such a. fantastic thank you sets up you did well you did very well you can get
7:36 am
a good good match and they added if you lose that somewhere in the forest in the middle of nowhere. this team will probably have one of these to give you a rescue that it. doesn't get a shot right now yeah. i am afraid. i haven't heard myself i just pray something like. i think i might. be. thinking about it. there's always a bit of commotion when you do like an action movement especially with gadgets and i think i don't like myself a little bit. like yeah we got the socks with my finger on. the nobody got time for that you gotta keep them in a. particular
7:37 am
. hurry you. see this but. this is a little bit rougher of windsor little bit. so i'll think things are busy things are good it's been a good pair. like the best part so for me to get meeting a fellow correspondent i love that part of what you think so far has been the most difficult part the most challenging for being an american i feel like i have to prove myself twice as hard as you would because i'm in america where there's still there's no they get off yeah yeah now i feel like i really do i feel like i work really hard to prove that i misquote is you guys every day as well as you do you don't you all do i'm going to have to pull your arms because you. secret the struggle. so private in this sport you know
7:38 am
it's true that when i need to fall crowd i watched your coverage of the terrorist attacks on the metro go watch them maybe twenty times in moscow. to prepare for. actually what i was doing was watching the tape over and over and then i watched lindsay friends tape over over and. i'm flattered by. sort of stories the best. way the most important thing is that you cannot report about anything that may cause spread or distribute the wrong information so if you're not sure about something you should just say different general stuff will show completely sure about maybe repeat it if you need to but you know you feel sad like i have three days after covering a story i felt i wanted you want more and it's sad it's a bad feeling at the same time because it's so horrible story.
7:39 am
bill says this kid for before right now i have. not bought a flight to see if we don't get. this from listening to the frustration. with. what to say he feels like. he's terrified he. desperately looking for just clean pumps and simply. fifty. it's been interesting it's been very busy been very time see what's been going on hasn't been for everybody that good story unfortunately we don't get to see the end
7:40 am
of this but i think this is the fifth that's the nature of this type of situation is something that isn't going to be a result we should look to the bio to find the head of peaceful sleep. back to get back home bills get a paper read that it's virus. there's a motive and stations will see what comes up. with the show we have a repetition of the goldfish the dress the privy for cool. it's pretty much. like you said it was a little. spend so much time seeing for you to see. yourself in. these whole series.
7:41 am
i wonder if you think that all that support cost free of charge or whether there is some sort of implicit expectation that american oil companies or just american companies will get someone back access to your countries when you're all rich is absolutely there is nothing these days simple enough to give somebody assist to do to achieve a certain victory there must be something in return. with
7:42 am
the economic up and downs in the final months day the deal and the rest because it's going to be a steep hill b. if we don't see. the media leave also we leave them. puzzle seems to suit your. party there's a goal. is that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from. politics. are to. take some steps to reassure ukraine we want to see a prosperous stable ukraine but i don't think that you know in the end i don't think that that's the west this point all that much for your great.
7:43 am
dramas that can't be ignored. stories others refuse to notice. food since changing the world. so picture of today's leaves. from around the globe. local. t.v. muscles versus the people and the growing democracy deficit voters all across europe have such a very strong message to the gate keepers of the european union and the establishment media they must conduct our to the people. now for the idea of painting it as a net head it is the same like something out of stock like but it actually is
7:44 am
possible you work when. you have one of the. first time i took that in a political thing it's not part of the chaotic headline and i'm definitely getting my depth you want to take not if you were not on the plane and if you yell at me tell me get your fill it why did your wife smile no i didn't go there is what i did . ok can i do a smile on her let's meet ok. nothing feels as besides being. by get out during iraq. although nothing is touching me so it's an all virtual which is really interesting. you don't really feel a b.s.c. like i might lead. him to kill him if he misses me a week on me have
7:45 am
a machine here so what they do is they'll take audit and they can only go into effect she sold going to the bank because that's the point that you know the whole thing and then we'll see if i look the way i love the. people that make me look good. or. like you i don't like this is played by the story of it's a little bit. just left yet home sweet home. least for a little while but it could turn around. today i need to get those bills paid i need to put money into much of an account from my russian account which i can only do physically. you know so i have to get that so i just you know keep the things of. life outside
7:46 am
of covering stories around the place keep not taking over and then get everything packed but go ahead of the pirates. all the even they would want to put it you're good with egypt if you want to follow didn't have these guys some of the duties these are added. more a c. or c. . the more a c. because he said so the little cliff and he's allowed in the quite open office at times but deep down you really love him. every tell you that of the you know it's. small and will actually just see. the output report from what we did. if. i was on telly a lot. yeah as you can see. just away
7:47 am
for two weeks and. fish. i'll try to have a little spruce and clean around before. before the harvest with all of the show every time i catch myself. these jeans that fit with the smoke of the. the it's just good for the bar kids over there have been there. do you feel like it's hard to ask about a person like i feel like and mine like with my with my boyfriend i feel like i'm constantly apologising for some reason and i don't know why i don't it's because i don't like have anything left to contribute i feel like my contribution is sorely lacking. boy from where experience required to actually have normal relationships with who are with people who are really. romantic relationships because hard to explain to a person why you're being cold at four am you have to wake up and go somewhere
7:48 am
forty two weeks you know a west they work in the industry but that also doesn't usually work oh. yeah so it's really. the wife you have to choose the chairs. and i do go on a lot of work and knowledge and health plan to get me. my camera man. i can operate this thing. called up what better way to get something that is subtle smell that you can use but find one but also that is eco friendly i mean we live in moscow lots of cars but nothing beats having something so simple and i'm glad i noticed that a lot of the way i'm not in a lot of the but i do think that. you know i know i come up that
7:49 am
way wait wait wait. wait hold on hold on. i didn't know i can look like. ok patty like that. ok i'm getting out of this thing now. that i want one of the. if i may have a. little touch up. going to feel. we have to get the ultimate that we have the ultimate gadget i mean i love. now being at a gas is all about testing all the gadgets and this one is one of my favorites a five fold the equal mobility i think it's one of those gadgets that anyone not
7:50 am
noble person can use running around town and getting good air in and the best thing about it is that it's equal frankly and it looks very. calm i got that one nearly killed me i'm like can you not see i'm one of the like movie people i just we did it like come on. you just found out that people will die. and that means so. they let it. go to it's a wrap yeah. it's fast it's cool it's a virgin it's like let's get in they all right it looks like it's a wrap what's today. misprint is that we had done. so we just finished shooting at the picnic and. the thing about stories where you
7:51 am
don't have control over is that you never know what you're going to get when you get that you have an idea of what you want. and you kind of putting a story in your head before that i wrote before i got to the expos thinking oh it's just going to be about gadgets i'm just going to be playing around with like new technology how do they have like some quiet you know smartphones a whatever and then you get there you realize that it is much like that so you then you have to set a dusting the story as you go along because you're picking up different things and you see different things. and then you said kind of holding the story as you go so it's just part of the world we live in you just have to adjust with what you get. it's been a long day i'm tired i'm hungry. and i still have to go to work to make sure that all my packages are ready for the next couple of days because i'm not going to be in town and it's
7:52 am
a saturday everybody else is going out having a great time and i'm still on the clock and i could just let it go and let somebody else take care of it but then i wake up the next day freaking out about what i see on telly sides but i do it because i can have a good night's sleep if i know that everything that i need is well done the way i want. all of the days of autonomy as well as my friend say a workaholic. even though it's only a fleeting visit it is nice to be cool but it's also quite strange that believe what's really be called. for is no. go for and look big here it is one of those every step. hundreds of years of european history i mean we've literally just crossed from east to west the pitch the building just in the military cemetery you know.
7:53 am
